Efficiency is a buzz word thrown around the business world, often misconstrued to describe a fast or quick performance. However, speed without precision and accuracy is not only inefficient, but it often leads to nothing but a damaged reputation.

At USFGIS, we understand the full meaning of efficiency and how to implement it in every aspect of our business.
Headquartered minutes from New Orleans, Louisiana, we are centrally located along the Mississippi River and its major exporting facilities.

Our vast backgrounds combine to produce a result second to none in our industry. From laborers, inspectors and auditors to traders and CEOs, we’ve held almost every position in the agricultural industry. We simply possess the knowledge, expertise and tools to get to the market faster than any of our competitors.

Our network reaches all major U.S. ports, and consists of only the most trusted sources in the industry. We verify that all inspectors and administrators in our network can understand, implement and troubleshoot our quality systems and procedures. Each individual is also vetted to ensure confidence in performance and integrity.

When clients place their trust in USFGIS, they rest easy knowing each task will be performed as quickly as possible, with the utmost precision and accuracy.

Efficiency is not just a buzz word at USFGIS; it is our word.



In order to facilitate trade around the globe, visibility is essential in the world’s busiest ports. Therefore, when creating USFGIS BV, the decision to open its headquarters in Rotterdam proved to be a no-brainer. Boasting Europe’s largest port system, Rotterdam allows for access to a plethora of loading and discharge operations which service the entire continent. A central border location also allows for direct access to all major European ports.

USFGIS BV, in cooperation with our partners and affiliates, delivers an uncompromised and superior solution for our clients’ inspection needs. Our group brings many years’ experience in various trade functions and remains in tune with the movement of the market.

Moreover, USFGIS BV receives support and cooperation from USFGIS LLC in order to obtain full working knowledge of overseas shipments. When opting for both U.S. export and European import services, clients can leave the entire quality & quantity process in our capable hands as both offices work together to ensure that goods arrive as stated.

To even further commit to the highest quality standards, EUFGIS is a member of the Global Superintendence Alliance (GSA). The GSA works in every major port and with every major trade product group to secure clients’ peace of mind when buying or selling goods on a contractual basis.

Global trade is our lifeline. In order to secure that lifeline, we remain visible where global trade happens most.



Export of agricultural products to the United States and other South American, Caribbean countries is particularly important. While only about twelve percent of U.S. agricultural exports go to Mexico, about sixty percent of Mexico agricultural exports go to the United States. Mexico’s growing population has made the country a net importer of grains. Significant Mexican agribusiness enterprises have modernized production in Mexico and a large number of U.S. agribusiness enterprises have significant investments in Mexico.

When clients call on a superintending agency, the agency needs to deliver what is needed in a timely fashion. Late answers lead to shipment discrepancies and potential loss of income for all parties involved. Thus, proximity to our clients determined the location of APFGIS Ltd.

These allocations, of course, lead to drastic increases in costs passed on to clients.

GSA™ members are smaller, more highly specialized groups with lesser overhead costs.

Therefore, not only do clients receive more competitive rates, but they also typically receive an industry expert truly dedicated to their account.

GSA™ members adopt to set inspection and reporting standards in order for clients to receive the same high quality of service wherever needed in the world.

Our GSA ™ network continues to grow and currently covers the following countries.
